And Is enjoyed Immensely, although a pratrib "ehack," even with its furniture removed. does not afford a spacious ballroom- More than In any other way except in actual farm work these .dances illustrate the difference between the days past and those of the present. : When the girls first went to the Indian country, many took with them the elab orate gowns and "fixing" that ' had been such a dejight to the feminine heart and had turned the Jieads of young men before the exodus. ' But of what possible use Is a beautiful gown or a picture hat when one seldom sees any one else at least, no one except the farm hands oftener than onoe a week, and where the prevailing style In feminine at tire is a short skirt, a shirtwaist and a rough slouch hat? To be sure, the men who' gathered at the few functions In Philips or vicinity are greatly attracted by a gown with a train. But as a "hickory" shirt, corduroy trousers, a red handkerchief around the throat and a broad sombrero topping all is the fashion for them, articles of dreamy elegance ap pear Incongruous as feminine apparel. So such costumes bsve dlssppeared, and the transplanted daughters of Iowa are now dressing In the plain and sensible garments of ths region. Loader of the Bsad. Among the girls who have taken up cla)mi In the' new country, one ot the most pop ular la Mtss Lottla Rogers, formerly ot Ames, la. She Is the only daughter of a wealthy re tired farmer, eo that, from the standpoint of financial necessity. It was not Incumbent upon her to undergo the hardships of. ths pioneer. V Happening- to draw a homestead In a community almost entirely composed of bachelors. Miss Rogers had not been In her new home a month before she had received several proposals of marriage. Now, It Is id. her victims number more than one hundred. Then, there Is Miss Philippe Watrous. whose father 'owns a six-story business block In Dee Moines, and Is estimated to be worth a million dollars. Miss Watrous be came a guide shortly after s'.e reached Bonesteel and conducted prospecting parties over the country that a few years ago was red with blood shed In battle with warring Indian tribes. When she was allotted a claim and reached the Roaebud country, she found thai her farm was back In the foothills, forty miles from the nearest railroad sta tion. .' She went out and looked It over, however, and was pleased with the prospect. Hiring two men te build her a "shack," she mounted a horse and rode back' to Philips to await the1 completion of her new dwel ling. One day at the postofflce In Philips she encountered a young man. Just In from the east, who was looking for a vulde. At that time all the Inhabitants of the hamlet who could leave their homes were out on the reservation, and Miss Watrous volunteered to take the young- maa and the party be represented to their destination. .

In the afternoon a severe storm came up, and the home-hunters were forced to halt. Early the next morning the journey was resumed. The first stream to which they came was out of its banks, while the bridge had been washed away. The only thing left was to ford it. In this attempt the provision wag-on, caught In an eddy, got away from the driver; the mules were ' drowned and the supplies lost. Then the Intrepid girl guide took command. , She asked a man to accompany her, and together they rode to an Indian tepee close by, where they obtained some corn meal and "klnklnnlck." The gruel made strengthened the half-famished women and children ' In the party, and the company pushed on. That night they struck an Indian settle ment, where they stopped for rest and to make a hearty meal on the g-ame which the Indians had killed. The second morn ing they resumed their journey and com puted It without fu.ther adventure. For this service Miss Watrous later received a watch. The novelty of this vocation appealed to Miss Watrous and she has become a reg ular guide. Miss Watrous, too, has had many oppor tunities to marry, but has declined them all. The real romance of the situation would demand that she look with favor upon the suit of the young man whom she met at the Phillips postofflce and, rumor has It, this Is precisely the state of the case just now. One of the social leaders on ths plains, a she was in Iowa, Is Mrs. I Drakeley Rood, wife of a prominent physician. She is living temporarily In a 10x11 shanty on her claim, while her husband Is construct ing a handsome $30,000 residence on Grand avenue, the fashionable residence street of Des Moines. , Mrs. Rood sprung a decided Innovation on her neighbors when she sped out to her claim in an automobile. She passed through the Indian settlements, where she created a furor among the red men, who had never seen an auto car before. She la said to have reached the farthest point In that country yet visited by automobile. In company wltb the physician's wife when she went out. to "hold down" her claim was her sister-in-law. Miss Rood of Boston, who had been fortunate enough also to draw a homestead. Dassled the Cattle Herders. These two women, during their residence on the reservation, have given a number of social functions that have daisied the cattle herders and prairie tillers of the surrounding country. Miss Julia Cutler was one of the best known school teachers In Iowa. She was especially popular among the 400 of Des Molnee, for It was thslr children with whom she largely came In contact. What was more natural than that she should start a school of her own In the Bonesteel country? " Therefore she had a sod addition erected to ber shanty and Invited children from the neighboring- ranches to corns to school Many of them drove miles to do so, and now the school la flourishing. It has a dosen pupils, four of whom ars Indian children, sons of Bear Paw, whose tepee Is across a small creek from the teacher's cabin.

She Is Miss Helen Huhtley and she Uvea at Marshalltown. V She was graduated ficm an eastern law school and determined Miat there was an opening for her In the profession In Iowa. But she did not remain 1. Iowa, for, when her Invalid brother, wourded as a spWier In the Philippines, was njpk' -enough to win a farm of 180. acres by proxy, she went out to the Indian country. The young attorney had not been there week before a neighbor was arrested on a charge of stealing cattle. Miss Hunt ley had dropped an Intimation that she pos sessed a knowledge of hw and she wss eng-ated to defend the sccused man. The county prosecutor went down and out be fore Miss Huntley and the cow puncher went free. That waa enough to win spurs for the women practitioner.

Nevertheless, it is acknowl edged that the girl has done wonder- In stopping the practice of profanity In the presence of women at least. Not long ago a woman ran for mayor In a settlement of a half dozen shuttles on the Rosebud river. She waa Mi l. A. B. Caldron, a widow. As the town was not incorporated, . the contest was, in reality, a joke, although she waa elected and is called "Tour Honor" by the few i:ien of the place, who meet every Saturday uttei noon at the store to lay in their supplies for the week.. The majority of the Iowa girls who have emigrated to the new land of promise have aettled down to what many rittfhi consider the monotonoua taak of raining cattle and cropa, with the intention of producing handsome returns to khow for their labors.

Tle love syndicate organised In New Tor Cltjr by the fascinating Mrs. Irella Brown and Mrs. George T. Verrault, the ready letter writer, might yet be- separating the coin of the realm from legitimate owners had not Robert Emmet Keene, actor, wit and adviser to the court of love organised by the sirens, lost his grip as "lookout man" and passed Into the charmed Seventy-third street circle of the Philadelphia grocer, James V. MacClellan. The extent to which this "love syndicate" operated Is amaslng. It Is calculated that In the three years during, which the com bine ensnared Its victims more than HOO DOO was taken from them. A census of the. dupes shows that they range from pros perous store owners to millionaire Wall street financiers. Probably 100 of them walked Into the spider wb. A golden-haired daughter of Mrs. Brown waa a conspicuous member of the com bination. She did not make love to any of the men, nor, receive their attentiona, but it was handy to have her around as Milady's maid. The same Interesting role waa assumed by Mrs. Brown's beautiful niece. Miss Mary Mason, daughter of a struggling Boston storekeeper. Mrs. Brown's scheme to marry the girl to a New Yorker ot wealth was given a rude shock when the girl eloped with a man she really loved. The youths who helped along the trick were scarcely out of their teens. Robert Emmet Keene, who for some time plsyed small parts In Proctor's Btock company, was the oldest of the group. In his posi tion as butler many a generous tip came Keene's way. Gregory Allen, who was an amateur sculptor, became associated with the matrimonial tricksters through his ac quaintance with George T. Verrault. hus band of the pretty brunette. . He donned a uniform and helped Keene In his job as butler. Mrs. Brown's four brothers helped In many ways to keep the syndicate going. The exterior of the house in which was held this "court of -love" gave no lndloa tlon of the luxury of . the Interior. Every thing was In taste, and there was always something unique In the form of entertain, mcnt. Music waa also provided at a great expense. But the library waa a great at traction of persons of culture. In It there were books of every kind. In almost every tongue. In the evening the place was as different as night from day. Books were thrown aside, furniture was moved away and card tables were brought out. Gentlemen of wealth called and were welcomed. For tunes, It la aald, were lost and won In a single game. Expensive dinners were served, champagne and other wines flowing freely. Some appeared only for a good time, for the companionship of these beau tiful women with sparkling eyes and ready wit; others were playing the fascinating game of love, for the women were devotedly admired, not merely by one or two. but by many, and In the hearts of several of the callers jealousy raged. Often Intensely bitter quarrels arose at cards, at the table, in the drawing room, and then only the extraordinary tact of the women averted trcedis.-Pbiladelpfaia Press, NEWEST STYLES FOR FALL DRESS GOODS i Scores of Imported Novelties We Import direct the best broadcloths.

The Upper Mississippi River Improve ment association holds Its fourth annual convention in Minneapolis this coming October. This will join with the Ohio river Improvement association and representa tives of the lower Mississippi states in holding a great valley river Improvement convention In St. Louis this coming Novem ber. This convention will debate the pos sibilities of, and make recommendations for, the development of a heavy freight channel from the -Twin Cities to New Or leans and from Great Falls, Mont., on the upper Missouri, to Pittsburg on the Ohio. The value to the. whole nation of these Im proved waterways, taken In conjunction with the Improvements now being made on the Illinois river and the Chicago canal, opening a ship passage from the great lakes to the gulf, can not be overestimated. If Mr. Carnegie Is right In his claim that our Internal waterways already offered the cheapest transportation In the world, these free arteries of commerce will at once con trol the trafllo rates of the twenty-two states that they drain. These states al ready produce the bulk of our agricultural wealth; they already support more than twice as many manufacturing plants as the other outlying states, and the value ot their finished products Is estlmted at over ten billion of dollars a year. As the market value of any finished pro duct Is estimated upon the producer's price, plus the cost of .transportation, .the open ing of these great waterways to freight traffic will benefit both the producer through a larger demand for his goods, and the consumer through a lessened cost for the same. President Roosevelt has said that the highways of commerce should be open to all on equal terms a condition which Is not likely to obtain, even through the enforce ment of recent 1 legislation that has been directed to that end. When the railroads are brought directly into competition with Independent carriers on a common highway, they will confront a controlling Influence far more effective than any rate bill can ever hope to be. The policy of charging all the traffic will bear la an obstacle to Industrial expannlon. A low cost of con veyance is a necessity to all the cruder products. Moreover, the productive ca pacity of our great Interior Is developing fester than our facilities of transportation. There Is an ever Increasing flood of pro ducts, crude and manufactured, from farm, mine, forest and factory sources which overtax our channels of commerce, efficient and magnificent as our railroads havo come to be. During the last four years engineers have been busily engaged- measuring widths, depths, charting, changing channels, cal culating the reebitlnaT force of shale-rocked and soft-loam banks along the upper Mis sissippi, and they have found that the ju dicious expenditure of the cost of but three battleships will wtngdam a 'channel ade quate to accommodate heavy freighting from St. Paul to New Orleans. The very dsma that make this unlocked channel pos sible arrest sufficient water to give a mill ing power to a hundred manufacturing cities each of upward of a hundred thou sand people along the way.

And this significant work 1 being done abroad In spite of the fact that their railroads are under government con trol. Any canalage of our own rivers, how ever, must have a -world-wide and not a local significance. The development of river industries must mean something larger, than the quadrupllcatlon of Keokuk or Lacrosre.

Canada and Argentina are contending with each other for the supremacy In the exportation of wheat, to foreign marktts, and the race is as close as the population battle which Milwaukee and Detroit havo waged for the last forty years. - The Dominion wheat, when brought to the headwaters of the' Mississippi or shipped from Port Arthur through the great lakes and the Erie canal, will have an advan tage abroad that the grain submitted to the lax of a - transcontinental rail haul can not hope to share. , Thus may the resuscitation of a river strengthen the friendship and lessen the differences between the neighbor nations, by serving both with impartial benefits.
